Ever wish you could see one of your favorite American Idol stars on the big screen? Well, you came close to seeing that happen.

After trying to hold back and not reveal which film it was, he let it out just for OK!:
"It was Rock of Ages! Everyone was like, you have to try out for this. I would have been terrible! I am supposed to have long hair and be this rock star guy. I would have sucked at it," says Kris, laughing.
"They said I was the best singer that had come in so far, which was cool, especially since the songs I was singing were like Foreigner songs. But I did the acting part, which I am sure I bombed. I never tried out for anything before."
So would "The Vision of Love" singer try to do more acting?
"No.... maybe if it comes around again someday. But that is just not my thing. I'd probably freeze up a little bit," Kris admits. "As long as the music thing is going okay, I'm probably going to stick to that. Or if it is at a good place, and something came up randomly, and I was going to be perfect for the part, I would do it. But I was not perfect for the lead role in Rock of Ages."
Too bad! We would have loved to have seen Kris in the role alongside Julianne Hough and Tom Cruise. Do you think Kris would have been right for Rock of Ages?
